The 1990s and the 1960s collide in the Dennis Hopper/Kiefer Sutherland comedy Flashback. The film is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and sports a solid array of colors and black levels. Aside of a small amount of softness in the image, this picture appears to be in excellent condition. The soundtrack is presented in a newly remixed Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround mix in English. While this 5.1 mix is a welcome addition, overall the directional effects and surround sounds are limited to the pop and rock songs used to underscore the film's action. Otherwise, the dialogue, music and effects are all clear of any hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc are English subtitles as well as a Dolby Digital Stereo soundtrack and a Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround track, both in English. Apparently Paramount decided that Flashback was not a worthy enough film for extra materials -- in other words, this is a completely bare bones disc.

A movie which can explain what the 60's really meant to those who lived it and those, like myself, who wished that they lived it. The 60's were about f---ing up the establishment, convincing the president that he is tripping on hallucinogenic drugs, and having a far-out time. And here we are, 20 years after the death of the flower generation, f---ing up the establishment again, and this movie couldn't have come at a better time either with the hippie revival of the late 80's. I believe that anyone who was born to a social minority should embrace their background, whether it be Irish, African, Asian, or even Hippie, every person is good if they choose to be. So headbands off to anybody around who would like to make the world a better place, or who likes wearing or making tie-dyes.

I was a movie usher in 1989 when this film was released, and if I had not been in that role at that time, I would have never been aware of this film. What a mistake that would have been! This is an awesome movie that is a delight to watch. It stars Dennis Hopper as the sixties radical who never let go of his past, and the great Keifer Sutherland as the uptight eighties yuppie who can't get started with his future. This film has a great plot, great acting, a great concept, and great music. The ending is absolutely great - whenever I watch it, it makes me feel good in terms of its overall message about life.

As a Canadian who grew up in Toronto and tried to experience all the 'bad stuff' which we called 'good stuff' at the time, it amases me how much this film seems to reflect how we felt at that time and how we played together. The limits were blurry and experimentation was allowed and encouraged. This film showed me I was not crazy and alone in my madness.

Okay, so you don't have to have come of age in the 60's, as I did, to really appreciate this great movie, but it helps! I've seen it several times over the years, but with the recent loss of Dennis Hopper, I am compelled to see it again, and share it with friends who never even heard of it! What a shame, that in all the lists of Dennis Hopper movies mentioned in the media shortly after his death, this movie was never mentioned. I think it was one of his best roles, playing an aging 60's radical pursued by a slick, stern, and quite young, 80's FBI agent (Kiefer Sutherland). What a ride they had together. And who could forget Hopper's final great line. I have it memorized, and like many who saw and appreciated the film, I am still analyzing it. You must see the movie to hear it!
